"One of the ground rules that I do in a lot of my trainings, maybe you all have heard this before. I love it, but it is 'don't yuck my yum,'" she said "For some of us, there are some things that are very yummy and it hurts when people 'yuck' on us. So for example, if one issue is my core issue and it's not yours, that's cool, it's my core issue, don't yuck my yum, that's cool."

"We can take care of any booing, just don't have an actual vote."
“All in favor of the motion to suspend the rules and nominate by acclamation Tim Kaine as the Democratic party’s vice presidential candidate, please say aye,” Fudge said to both applause and protests.

After having deemed the measure passed, Fudge continued talking as some in the crowd could be heard protesting and demanding an actual roll call vote of all the delegates. The music inside the convention hall was then turned up to drown out the protests.

CNN’s Jeff Zeleny reported that Virginia Rep. Bobby Scott had been scheduled to give a three minute nominating speech in support of Kaine, but it was cancelled after convention officials and Hillary Clinton’s campaign were “afraid of boos from Sanders supporters and other progressive groups.
